Parent Governor

There is a parent governor vacancy on the Governing Body of the academy.  Parent governors are elected by parents of registered pupils at the academy.

As the parent, carer or other person with parental responsibility for a pupil at the academy you can stand for election and vote, unless you are:

  • employed by the academy and the number of Governors who are employees of the Academy Trust would exceed one third of the total number of Governors (including the Principal); or
  • a “Local Authority Associated Person” and the number of Governors who are Local Authority Associated Persons would represent 20% or more of the total number of Governors.

If you are interested in being a parent governor, you can nominate yourself or, with their permission, another parent with a child at the academy.

Simply complete the nomination form and return it to the academy by Friday 28th January 2022.

If you put yourself forward and no ballot is necessary you will be elected unopposed from the day after the deadline for nominations passes.

If more parents want to become governors than there are vacancies, a ballot will be held. Ballot papers and details of the election process will be sent to all parents and carers eligible to vote.

You are invited to provide a statement to support your nomination as a parent governor (see the attached nomination form).  If a ballot is held, this statement will be included on the ballot paper to help other parents decide who to vote for.

If you are elected as a governor, your term of office will normally be four years. You can resign at any time. If your child leaves the academy you can continue as a governor until the end of your term office.

Please note that being an academy governor brings considerable responsibility for the proper management of academies and the protection of children and, therefore, the successful candidate(s) may be required to complete a criminal records check.


  • All natural parents, whether they are married or not; and
  • Any person who, although not a natural parent, has parental responsibility for a child or young person; and
  • Any person who, although not a natural parent, has care of a child or young person (having care of a child or young person means that a person with whom the child lives and who looks after the child, irrespective of what their relationship is with the child, is considered to be a parent in education law).
